COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sunny gold in complexion with a vinous, psychedelic aroma bursting with wildness. Bone dry with a champagne-like effervescent and volatile acidity. Additional aging in oak barrels develops an even more complex palate.

Bottle (thanks BVC)... Poured pale, hazy yellow with a thin head. Had this beer once before and didn’t leave a huge impression. Tthis time, with a little bit of age, it really shined. Dry with a ton of lemon zest and grassy earthiness. A bit of funk with mild sourness. Full mouthfeel and felt just right on the palate. Easy drinking and hitting the spot for funky beer.

Hazy glowing orange, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Nose is white pear, citrus, vinous white wine oak, a little must. Medium to light bodied, good acidity and tartness, moderate carbonation, nice dry finish. Still drinking well.

750 ml bottle sample (notes). Pours a hazy orange brown with a small bubbly white head. The aroma has tart fruit (pears, citrus), hints of wood, some funk. The flavor has tart, acidic fruit notes, light vinegar, wood. Good carbonation and dry. Overall, pretty nice.

wedgie9 (2007) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Tasted on 8/20/11 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle obtained in a trade. Pours cloudy, but bright orange with a thin white head that recedes to nothing more than very thin spotty lace. The nose is sour and funky with some lactic notes, lemon acidity, barnyard, and a nice dose of vanilla oak treatment. The flavor is tart and sour with lemon acidity, a lightly lactic note, a bit of light malt flavor that I associate with wheat, and the oaky vanilla flavor. The body is medium with average, stinging, carbonation, and a long wheat malt, sour lemon, and vanilla oak finish.

750ml bottle pours a transparent bright gold with one ring of white head. Nose is apple juice, white grape, sweet, a little candy sugar, pears. Flavor is similar, apple juice, candy sugar, pear, some scented candle. Medium bodied, sweet finish. Fairly straight forward.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Clear golden- straw pour with no head to speak of. Doughy sourness and lactic acid are pretty much all I got from this beer. Hints of vinous grapes and tannic acidity. Ok but not great.

Thanks to MrChopin for this one! Clear golden pour. Bretty tropical fruit, orange, and cheesecloth on the nose. The flavor brings more lovely pineapple and mango, a touch of grainy dough, and light funk. Pretty nice, but not awesome.

750mL thanks to MrChopin. Tepid, hazy peach pour with small carbonation. Small white ring of bubbles. Nose is grainy, wheat, sour mash wheat beer, yellow apples and Bosc pear. Taste is a tad cidery, blander, small acetic acid heat. Mild pineapple fruitiness. Pretty weak sauce overall.
